"Rock the Porch" is a public art initiative based in the Plum Creek neighborhood in the City of Kyle. Rock the Porch will feature rocking chairs assembled and decorated by local artists and personalities and is similar to the Cow Parade of Chicago and Guitar Town in Austin, albeit on a more local scale. This initiative will beautify the Plum Creek neighborhood as well as the greater Kyle community.
Proceeds from this project have been donated to the Kyle-based charity Hope and Love for Kids.
Plum Creek is accepting applications from Kyle-area artists and individuals who would like to participate in “Rock the Porch.” The neighborhood looking is for people or groups with a creative streak to create unique (maybe even a little weird) rocking chairs that reflect the community surrounding them.
The rocking chairs theme was selected for this exercise in expression and community building because the chairs encapsulate the friendly, community spirit of the Plum Creek neighborhood and the Kyle community as a whole. The chairs, which will be placed throughout Plum Creek and the City of Kyle, offer a place for people to engage with works of art that inspire and offer comfort and relaxation.
